Galaxy S2 now comes with ICS pre-installed
Well now, for anyone who has been considering purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone rather than opting to snap up the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone from the Sammy stable, the Samsung Galaxy S3, it appears that if you do pick up a Galaxy S2 now, it will come with Android 4.0 pre-installed.
According to the guys over at GSM Arena, although the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 has been around for some time, it now appears that Sammy has started shipping Galaxy S2 units pre-installed with the ICS operating system.
The guys state that they have only received confirmation of this from the Indian market, but figure that Sammy is doing the same in other markets as well, although that hasn’t been confirmed.
No doubt if you are looking for a Samsung Galaxy S2 at least you now know Samsung has taken the need to update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of your hands, and according to the guys, if you do want a Galaxy S2 with ICS pre-installed you need to look for the smartphone imported during April or after.
Of course if you do or have purchased a Samsung galaxy S2 that doesn’t have Android Ice Cream Sandwich the update is over the air so you’ll only require a WiFi network to grab and install the operating system.
So is there anyone still considering picking up a Galaxy S2 albeit the Galaxy S3 becoming available very soon?
